Blue Eyes Better
Written with quiet intensity, this beautiful and spare novel examines what happens to Tessa's family after her fifteen-year-old brother is killed in a drunk-driving accident. Set adrift, Tessa is forced to find a way to keep going . . . even as her mother drifts further and further from her. Like "Getting Near to Baby," this is an unstinting, compassionate, and deceptively plain story of a damaged family forging a way out of its grief.
